Standing out from 100 candidate cities with the most tourism income in the Chinese mainland, Harbin was ranked 24th on the list in terms of comprehensive standards.
The annual visits of domestic tourists and domestic tourism income, as well as the number of hotels and scenic spots in the city, led Harbin to the top of the list.
